Sea Turtle Conservation Curaçao | Dive Curacao

Playa Piskado (Playa Grandi) is part of a Sea Turtle Protection Initiative by
Sea Turtle Conservation Curacao (STCC)

For years the local fishermen have been cleaning and selling fish at this particular beach which is also a Fisherman’s Wharf. These daily activities resulted in a group of sea turtles feeding on the remains of the fish and becoming residents at the beach. If you’re lucky, you may see trigger fish and larger pelagics, more common on the wild North side, and pretty rare on the protected South side.

Nowadays, Playa Piskadó has become a popular spot for our island’s visitors and snorkeling ‘with’ the turtles is in high demand. BUT, before you get in the water we would like to invite you to first read the signs and information made available at the beach by Sea Turtle Conservation Curacao.

Please respect our sea turtles and our local fishermen at Playa Piskadó. Do not touch nor feed the turtles, don’t chase after them but respect their natural environment and help us conserve this beautiful and unique experience.
